Have you ever......
tried to type and work on a computer with a momma cat laying on your knee nursing kittens? Suspect not....right now, I have a lovely momma cat purring her head off, happy as Larry, just laying, legs spread all over my keyboard with a little guy happily nursing from her. Makes for an ergonomically incorrect typing position........but sure is cute!

Little Miss Muffet
In her own words.
"Well, my babies just had their second birthday. They are now two weeks old. They are really rollie-pollie. Their eyes are open, but they aren't ready to leave the nest yet. As you can see in the photo I am able to get a break from time to time while they sleep, Phew! Boy, do I have a big appetite and I am thirsty all the time. My foster mom took some pictures of the little chubbers, we think they are both girls, but aren't sure. She thought of naming them May and Tag, (because they were born in the laundry room) but I think that's pretty silly. I will give you a new report soon. You can see pictures of my babies on the Kitten Adoptions page."

A big thank you to every one that supported the garage sale, and all the people who worked to make it happen.
Also many thanks to Safeway for the donuts and milk, Subway for the coffee, cups and sugar, and The Roost for offering us coffee. Couldn't have done this without you!

Fur and Whiskers!
Spring is definitely in the air which means that CCAR is getting busy with the arrival of litters of kittens, and in some cases their Mammas as well. Please be patient if you don't see a lot of kittens on the Adoptions page just now. Many are too young to be going to their homes, but are just now getting to be old enough that we can start to show them. Check regularly on the Kitten Adoption page.
There are some real cuties that we know you are going to love. And for those of you who perhaps do not have the time for a kitten and are looking for a young adult cat, the Moms of the recent litters of kittens are truly some of the sweetest cats you could ever hope to meet. Stay tuned everyone.

Here are two more of the cats that have been kept in a shed for five years. These two are quite shy but slowly, slowly starting to welcome being petted. Walter, the orange one is a little worrying as he is not eating well. He was just a young kitten when he was put in the shed so the new sights and sounds he is experiencing are pretty overwhelming. Both these cats would really benefit from some patient souls just petting them. Let Beverly know if you can visit with them and help them get used to this scarey wide world.
Further note: yesterday, another one of these sad creatures arrived, a beautiful Siamese looking female. She is terrified, and pretty bouncey.

at Dean Park on April 27th
On April 27th, Cat's Cradle Animal Rescue will be participating in the Dean Park Garage sale as we have done for quite some time now.
The difference is that this year, WE ARE NOT asking for general donations - due to less folks being able to help sort/organize these items for the sale; so this year, we are being more strategic on what we are able to intake.
If you have items that you would like to donate, and think we may be interested in and we can sell easily, please contact Beverly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know the details of what you wish to donate. We cannot accept boxes of items unless we know exactly what is in them.
Thank you SO much for helping us with this everyone! We know that this is an additional step, but this will help us SO much with the Garage Sale!
